Wonderful friendly staff and a lovely hotel with lots of character. Loved the verandah to sit out on early in the morning. Really good location to see downtown Victoria. The only drawback which isn’t much is lack of an elevator. So if you have mobility issues look for another place to stay. Thank you for a lovely stay!
